CARE AND CONCERN
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and whoever sows generously will reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give not reluctantly or under compulsion for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly so that in all things at all times having all that you need you will abound in every good work.
Corinthians 9: 6 – 8
